Easy project for mechanically inclined?

Post by JAB » Mon Sep 21, 2020 7:16 am

Not mine, but I can't tell you how many times I've heard over the years, "I can do the mechanical stuff easily, it's the body work I can't do or afford to pay for". Here's an opportunity; https://www.ebay.com/itm/264871822132?_ ... 1758.m4704

A seized engine is not an "easy project for the mechanically inclined". You need a professional machine shop to handle that which means (possibly) THOUSANDS in work to rebuild the motor. May be worth it all if the rest of the jeep is sound however.

Yes but as JAB said, that's a real opportunity.
With so many parts added to the jeep. :wink:

My wife saw this and I was showing her that I have the same late wheels, CJ air cleaner, and M151 BOD light and that this one doesn't run and it's already over $6,000. She said that we should sell ours.......after I take her for one more ride before it gets too cold out!

Stop it Leo!

But, on a similar topic;
We saw this on our ride today and I reminded her that not so long ago I would have tried to buy and save it!
